HUGE HIT TO MY CASH NET WORTH…

BUT IT FEELS GOOD!

For the last year and a half, I’ve spent literally ZERO DOLLARS on myself. I’ve always been very frugal (not quite a minimalist) and have focused my time, energy, and money on pleasing/helping others.

But this weekend…. Was ALL! ABOUT! ME! 😉 I’ve had some struggles in my personal life and hadn’t been as confident as I should be. People I love had started noticing patterns in my life that weren’t exactly normal! So after a discussion with a concerned family member, it was decided that I would treat myself for once. With that being said, I WITHDREW $500 from my investments and SPENT IT ALL ON ME!

It felt good as heck, too! I bought a boatload of clothes (much better than the thrift store clothes I used to wear all the time, some accessories (including an $85 designer wallet), and some good night’s out with friends!

Withdrawing the cash wasn’t really the wisest decision ever, but it definitely did something for me on the inside that was positive. It was like letting off a whole lotta steam that was built up! That’s the best part about personal finance….. It’s PERSONAL! So even if certain actions aren’t necessarily ‘by the book,’ some times an exception to the rules can be a healthy breath of fresh air.

I feel better. And life is good. That’s what matters most. 🙂

THANKSGIVING IS OVER…. BUT I’M STILL THANKFUL :)

It’s been a week since Thanksgiving but BOY AM I THANKFUL FOR TODAY!

Promotions are in full effect on my end of things! I got promoted in both my corporate position and my personal business….. Along with that comes raises and commissions! OWWW! I’m going to post a net worth update once my commission check hits my account because I had to take some cash out of my emergency fund to invest some cash in my business… That came back with a 600% return in one day.
